This is pretty similar to what I would try out for a white splash. I think Baleful Strix is better than Coiling Oracle here. I know we see this differently in Imperial, but I think adding in the equipment gives you additional uses for evasion on offense, and you're already building towards a stronger midrange game with the SFM. The mana gets uglier, but I think the upside is worth it if it can be figured out. It's not like Aluren was particularly Wasteland resistant to begin with. I think I would also consider dropping one SFM or Agent for a MD True-Name Nemesis. It's Recruit-able, plays nicely with the slightly more midrange gameplan, and gives you a defensive option to replace Dream Stalker in a pinch. I don't really like losing the discard and MD Decays, but I can see FoW playing better with the rest of the deck and space for a SFM package (which seems like a solid approach) has to come from somewhere.Quote from ExpiredRascals »I tried messing around with it today, trying to solve the manabase problems. Here's one possible draft below. I cut black to the bone. Still not really feeling this over Imperial Aluren ftr. The zero entries are things not in the deck that maybe should be.
I haven't given the white version a ton of thought, but sliding a little farther towards midrange with a combo finish seems like a reasonable approach. I don't think it takes me off of the Imperial version. I have Recruiters of both flavors to play around with so I'll try some things out.
